    There's Finally An Easy DIY Solution For All Your Plastic Bags

    I can see my drawer again!

    by ,

    What you need:

    *Plastic bags

    *Empty Cleaning Wipe Dispenser


    To create the dispenser for your plastic bags, clean out and dry an old cleaning wipe dispenser. As an optional step decorate the dispenser with craft paper.

    To arrange your plastic bags to fill your dispenser, take your plastic bags and lay them flat, pushing out any air inside of the bag. Fold your bag in half on the longer end of the plastic bag. Make sure the handles of the bag are on the top side of the fold, furthest away from you.

    Fold the handles of the bag at a 90 degree angle, away from the body of the bag. Starting at the handles of the plastic bag start to roll your plastic bag toward the bottom of the bag.

    To add the next bag, fold the next bag in half, like you you did earlier, and place the handles of the second bag on top of the bottom of the first bag. Roll the overlapping sections of the bag and continue to add more plastic bags to create the roll.

    Take your plastic bag roll and squeeze out any remaining air. Place it inside the dispenser. Attach the cap of your dispenser and pull out the 1st bag.
